Famed for his knowledge of Scripture, St. Anthony is the patron saint of finding lost objects. At Mission Dolores in San Francisco, here a little Jesus pops up out of the book that the saint carries in his hand. Part of a side altar, they date back, I believe, to 18th century colonial Mexico. Like all things pop-up, this sculptural figure conveys a strong element of surprise. I’ve never seen this iconographic form; as always, if you know better, please chip in and I’ll update the post.
